“I reported directly to Mitt Romney…You can’t be CEO of Bain Capital and say, `I really don’t know what my guys were doing.’”
- Marc B. Wolpow, former Bain Capital executive, 2002
- Source: Boston Globe (through Politicker)
- Context: Romney claims that he left Bain Capital in February of 1999. However, recent documents filed with the SEC show that Romney was the sole share holder, chairman, and CEO of Bain Capital as late as 2002. His signature also appears in at least six documents filed with the SEC until 2001. With this new revelation, the Romney campaign claimed that he had nothing to do with the company or its decision making, and that his name being on the documents was a technicality. This 2002 quote for Wolpow appears to contradict that claim.
